Pour Me Out

pour me out
til there's nothing left of me
pour me out

pour me out
so that someday i might see
pour me out

i want to lose myself
in finding You
embracing grace and facing truth
tear down these walls that dim
the shape i'm in

pour me out
from my river to Your sea
pour me out

pour me out
let me ride on waves of peace
pour me out

i want to understand
this greater plan
how character can shape a man
Your image surrounding me
pray that will be

Daddy Never Cried

daddy never cried
he just turned away
never showed the side
that was soft as clay
what a weak reply
you live inside a blanket of shame

why would you need a gift of pardoning
until your sin becomes your own
soon comes inevitable reckoning
then you'll understand
just how much true love can change a man

dady never cried
will not work today
put your pride aside
we all need grace
somewhere deep inside
what you love is what you need to hate

when will you stop blaming somebody else
you make decisions on your own
you choose to leave the truth for nonsense
do you understand
just how much the truth can change a man

Anything

nothing i can say
will matter anyway
just a vain display
with me in the middle

no more empty words
will anymore be heard
all my rhymes and verbs
mean very little

it doesn't mean anything without You
just a nice melody without You
whithout Your Spirit to sing
of the hope and the joy that You bring
without You it doesn't mean anything

nothing i'll ever do
could hold a candle to
the love displayed when You
said You forgave me

and what i know of love
is that i'm not deserving of
One You called Your Son
One sent to save me
like love holding the hand of hate
You choose to love me anyway

it doesn't mean anything without You
just words that i say without You
without Your Spirit to sing
of this change of the heart that You bring
without You it doesn't mean anything

Fight

she takes the six o'clock train
its off to work and then home again
she wonders if this will ever change
clutching her pillow she hides in a dark
room in her heart

how long has it been
since love touched her and she let in
chased out the shadows, filled emptiness
with her head in her hands she cries
"come back again, i need you my friend"

we fight on our knees
but don't often see
the battles that rage being won
but fight on until
and tarry until
love comes to carry us on
to kneel with the broken in spirit
and call upon the Son

so many holes here within
torn apart and then blown by the wind
hell and highwater come crashing in
pride says to fight but he cannot defend this means to an end

the truth cuts like a blade
bleeding all of the plans that he made
nothing but faith in the One Who came
can ever bring peace to the spirit again
will he understand

we fight on our knees
for those who might see
the battle is over, its won
not by our hands
by the Son of man
He Who is has overcome
death and the grave hold no power
to those who call upon the Son

Line Of Love

okay, You're right
i cannot fight this all alone
let in the light i need to know

Your line of love goes on and on
drawn in a circle, drawn upon
my heart and i can't erase it

this line of love connecting me
to You, forever knowing
when i fall You'll help me to face it

facing myself
hasn't been easy
can't hide any longer
those days are through

Your line of love goes on and on
leads to a place where i belong
where mercy waits to embrace me

this line of love that draws me in
forgiving forgetting my sin
and in Your grace it has traced me

Ordinary Day

have you always been the same my friend
you don't have to be alone and lonely my friend
will you always be the same my friend
i'm wondering, i wonder will you see...

on this, an ordinary day
there's an extraordinary Savior
waiting, wanting you to know Him
on this, an ordinary day

do you even recognize your need
how can you build an arguement from nothing my friend
can you feel Him plant the seed my friend
its happeneing, i wonder will you see...

on this, an ordinary day
there's an extraordinary Savior
waiting, wanting you to know Him
on this, an ordinary day
creation's author waits for
you who happened to need Him
more than He needs you
on this, an ordinary day

it was an ordinary day
when He died once for all
and He'll still be the same

Tried To Tell Her

she wallows in her misery
what made her think that this would be
that this would be any different
from the first mistake she made
still she dove without a care
for the second time around she'll pay

and wallow in her misery
the first to fail the last to flee
she thought she'd figured out the answer
to some long forgotten page
from some long forgotten book
on how to get her own way

i've tried and tried to tell her
it's not what you do
it's what you've done
with what you did
i've tried to tell her

she wallows in her misery
a failure at failure she fails to see
that this overacted part
from this neverending play
is just her substitute
for reality anyway

i've tried and tried to tell her
it's not what you do
it's what you've done
with what you did
i've tried to tell her

Face To Face

for so long we walk in darkness
hoping to find the way
but without something or someone to guide us
we stumble blindly day after day

so He lights candles in hopes that we'll see
glimpses of Him in this mystery
that we'll leave shadows and move toward the flame
and we move closer we'll see His face...

to face with the One who made mountains
who hung the stars in the sky
He is love and loved us so much
that He was willing to die

dies for the man on the corner
who sold his soul years ago
and now knows of only regret
to trade His life for the woman
who doesn't think mercy
is something that she'll ever get

hope to all who are hopeless
who've ever known kindness
He has not forgotten your name
you are loved by the One Who
with His Own hands has made you
and love you forever the same

Them

and the band marches on and on without slowing
and their leader leads them on and on without knowing
never looking back to see the mess that they had left behind

the media mediates between the masses and the myth it creates
but it never know the damage grown the more it bend the truth

they tell us what they want us to hear
the patronize our aching ears

it's all too clear the wealths of violence and sexual perversion
offer more than just some innocent psychological diversion
they have left so many bleeding, needeing help from Christ the King

we don't have to watch what they want us to see
yet we've let them bind our hands and our feet

how can you say, "let's all remain unaffected," when no lines were drawn
the band just marches on
and they forget you when you fall down

Say

let me go back
and do it all over again
what i know now
i wish i knew then
there's a pain
that just will not die

let me hear you say it's okay
let me hear you say it's alright
i could really use some words of comfort
so i won't be alone tonight
so i won't be alone tonight

let me move on
i've said I was sorry
help me look out
and see the sun again
'cause there's a pain
that somehow must die

Kingdom Smile

his petty problems now left behind
no hesitation, purely divine
the first revelation
was that he would be free
his second was he'd drown in grace
his frowning face replaced irresistably
the floor meets his knees

He's come and everyone in the kingdom wears a smile
because He's won
oh, He's come and waves of joy spread across the kingdom
smile because He's won the battle

all the excuses that you have brought
no explination was ever sought
to stand before the King of Kings
to taste a kiss of life beyond
no expectations just your barren self
that's how He sees you anyway
life is yours today

You've come and everyone in the kingdom wears a smile
because He's won
oh, You've come and waves of joy spread across the kingdom
smile because He's won
the battle is won

Garden

standing over my garden i look down
and disappointment overcomes me
the tears that formed are
now falling from my eyes
and watering the ground around me
lost inside this dissolution
i hear You say my name

i hear You calling
i hear You calling to me
i hear You calling

faith, like a flower, needs water and room to grow
placed in sunlight, not in shadow
hope that the seed that is
hidden will rise and bloom
from the heart of one forgiven
love runs in the Living Water
i've heard You say my name
